Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ:SBUX) -- Semi-Monthly Update
Starbucks is doing exactly what it should be doing - going UP.
Just so you know, when my Fundamental Valuations are super positive for a Company, the Technical or Charts ALWAYS support this kind of price movement - hence my Methodology of "Investing Wisely." It like all other Companies is vulnerable to Pull-Backs (check-out 2012 - - $61 to $42 that's about 33% and that is unacceptable asset management) and I am now / once again suggesting - Caution.

Forecasted Bullish "Alerts"
Ascending - BUT - I have recently Instated Caution to my Notes!
At this time (SBUX) remains in a Bullish mode and has produced an annualized profit - over the past few years of about +183%. (that's per year - not including dividends).
It, however is currently giving -- both Fundamental and Technical - - Bearish "Warnings" that if ignored will be costly.

April, 2009 @ $8.00
Performance to Date: +913%

Starbucks is on my Pizazz List and has been for a long time. My performance is similar to others on this fun list and fun means superior profits for you.
Accurate and Profitable Forecasting and Appropriate Highly Selective Recommendations can be performed on any security on the planet. Even the ones in your portfolio!
Thanks for your interest in my Forecasts - work / analytics . . .
My Current Forecast is quite bright. That is if my Forecast for a General Market - Bearish Cycle / Bearish Inflection Point is delayed! (I will be more specific upon request).
If you own or are considering owning Restaurant Companies, the securities have definitely been positive. Starbucks Corp. is currently strong Technically but I have mini - reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, however it on an Strong Bullish Forecast - "Alert."
My Current Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits - maybe at even higher prices? There will be an end but I am not Forecasting an "end" at this time.
Fundamentally - ( weighting - - 40% ): My Analytics (weighting 40%) for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (SBUX) are and remain positive. Plainly stated they are Flat but comparatively very positive.
Technically ( weighting - - 35% ): Within this outstanding Company, my Indicators are not breaking down like with so many other Companies. It recently took a Hit off of its highs of $83. to a very recent $75. back to $79. and once again back to $75. This means TOPPING - sooner or later.
Consensus Opinion - ( weighting - - 25% ): My third pillar of Research is one that is ALWAYS distorted to the Positive by most all financial analysts. That's because they are afraid of being Bearish. I Am NOT! My articles on "Reality" are supportive of the below 20 year Chart.
I will personally and promptly reply to any serious investor's inquiry as to my very cautious position for (SBUX) !

"Selectivity" is what I preach (along with Discipline and Patience) and is what separates the Average Investor and Mutual Funds from the profits that come with long-hours / hard work and "Selectivity."
Here are a number of the Component Companies / Peers in the Restaurant Industry Group that I focus on rather frequently: SBUX, MCD, WEN, YUM, ARCO, EAT, DRI, KKD, DNKN CAKE, RT, DPZ, PNRA, BLMN, TXRH, DENN, BWLD, THI.
